Bio & Inspiration
I am a mixed media abstract artist living and working in Northern California. Largely self-taught, I did not emerge on the art scene in a conventional fashion. My career has crisscrossed the world of applied arts and visual expression and my work has evolved over the last two decades, shaped directly by a close engagement with material and process, and a focus on abstraction and design.
My experience as a teaching artist over the last eight years have inspired and deepened my appreciation for creative community and collaboration. I am represented by several galleries in the US and Canada.
There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.”
As a self-taught artist these words have provided me with both a launching pad and a landing site in pursuit of my work. Awareness of the light has assisted me in recognizing my aesthetic and teaching skills. Sensitivity to the light has guided me in choosing the paths presented before me.
